What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is defined as a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys memory and the ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate, and carry out daily activities. As the disease progresses, those diagnosed with the disease may experience changes in behavior and personality. These changes can be exhibited as paranoia, anxiety, agitation, hallucinations, or delusions.

Early detection is critical as medical intervention may be available to slow the progression of the disease. Talk with your physician about diagnostic testing and treatment options.

We can help you:

  • Plan ahead for long-term care expenses
  • Estimate the cost of care and provide asset protection from the cost of nursing home or in-home care
  • Prepare legal documents
  • Explore available resources in your community
  • Provide disease education on:
    • Stages of the disease
    • Communication needs
    • Behavior interventions
    • Avoiding caregiver stress
  • Provide care planning and case management to help caregivers manage the disease stages
